T.I. recently dropped his latest project entitled Dime Trap, a decade after his classic Trap Muzik album. While the project deals with similar themes, the rapper’s lyricism points to maturity as displayed in his Teyana Taylor-featured track “You.”
The song deals with the issues of this current era, from the hypocrisy found in the political sphere to the glorification of the hustler’s lifestyle. “You” introduces listeners to the concept of doing better, harnessing the power of intentional focus in times of struggle.
This is a reflection of the artist’s own life. He still reps his city in his music while also giving back to the community. His latest contribution, civil rights advocacy aside, is his Trap Museum. The southern gem practices what he preaches in style.
You know the Lord send you a sign, don’t ignore it
And that’s whether you study from the Bible or Quran or the Torah
We original, indigenous, God among men
It’s two things that’s yours, your body and your sin
